New reviews! (And a reminder about Amazon.)

From Amazon:

I’ve been following Lovecraft’s work via movies like ReAnimator and From Beyond. I’ve read a few classic Lovecraft stories and enjoyed them a lot. This erotic horror anthology does an excellent job revering Lovecraft’s mythos while adding some hot sex to the collected tales of women and men encountering creatures from beyond. Arousing and suspenseful. This anthology will definitely appeal to lovers of erotica that like some supernatural mixed in. If you enjoyed Stuart Gordon’s movies based on Lovecraft’s work, you’ll enjoy reading Cthulhurotica.

This has a nice collection of stories that kind of run the gauntlet of horror. As someone who really doesn’t read horror, this was a good way to get used to the genre.

You get exactly what the title suggests, even though I doubt many know the extent of what that means. Eerie, sexy, wild!

Since Amazon no longer allows Cthulhurotica to show up in a search of the site, the print anthology is also not showing up on Goodreads–which seems to think the only way you can get it is as a $100 used book. Not true! You can buy the print edition at Amazon by clicking here (it will take you straight to the listing).

The “H.P. Lovecraft Bronze Bust Project” Kickstarter is now live!


Look, we’re on the poster!

Spearheaded by sculptor Bryan Moore, The H.P. Lovecraft Bronze Bust Project is dedicated to the preservation and celebration of the famous author’s literary legacy. Lovecraft’s cosmic imagination has influenced every region of pop culture including video games, comic books, music and film. After years of hard work, The H.P. Lovecraft Bronze Bust Project has finally secured a location for a life size bronze tribute to Lovecraft at the Providence Athenaeum Library (founded in 1753) and we are looking to his fans and the public to raise the funds needed to place the bust there as a gift of public work on August 22nd, 2013. Please back our project and help give the Dark Prince of Providence the bronze monument he so rightfully deserves.

It has been for four days, actually, but before we got a chance to tell you about it (and the 5 signed/numbered copies of Cthulhurotica we donated as a reward tier) it had already made it’s initial goal. Plus, the copies of Cthulhurotica were one of the first things to be sold out.

We couldn’t have that, so we donated 5 more.

We’re the first to admit that Lovecraft’s work is problematic–the whole inspiration for our anthology was to take his world and do something with it that didn’t exclude all the bits we love. But the undeniable truth is that Lovecraft is inspirational, and this project not only gives thanks to the man for getting a lot of us started, it also brings the community together to create a work of art. Please note that we’re not affiliated with the project in any way (outside of donating books). However, we do support it, and would like you to as well.

The H.P. Lovecraft Bronze Bust Project has stretch goals that allow the sculpture to buy a better pedestal and pay for a higher quality of bronzing, which will help the bust last longer. If we’re going to do this (and we certainly are), let’s do it right.

Click on the link to read more about the people behind it (who also make the award sculptures for the HPL Film Festival), the library where the bust will be installed, and to pledge:


You can also follow the project on Facebook to get regular updates.

We’re Too Sexy For Your Amazon

Have you tried searching Amazon.com for Cthulhurotica lately? When you do, the search bar helpfully fills in “Cthulhurtotica in Books”, “Cthulhurtotica in Books Trade-In”, or “Cthulhurtotica in Kindle” … but then shows you five books which are NOT Cthulhurotica.

In order to get to our book, you have to choose from one of the tiny Department listings on the upper left-hand side. If you click on any of the options listed, only then will you finally get to a page with the print and Kindle versions of our book. Why is Amazon making it difficult to buy a well-reviewed and popular anthology like ours?

We’re too sexy. 


After exchanging several emails we were told that our cover was deemed too adult to be shown on the site, and we were told that a) there’s no record of who made that decision, and b) there is no way to have that decision reconsidered. They’ll sell the book and take your money, but they’re going to make you work for it.

We want the experience of getting your hands on our Lovecraftian erotica to be as easy as possible. So here’s how to buy it:

We prefer you to buy direct from us because our ebooks are always DRM-free. You’ll find the EPUB for nook and other readers, only $3.99: here. You can also get the MOBI file for Kindle and other readers, $3.99: here.

Cthulhurotica also has a NOOK edition via Barnes & Noble, $3.99: here. KOBO readers can get theirs here (still $3.99).

If you want the print version, which is currently available only from Amazon, you can go straight to it here. It’s a 5″ x 8″ trade paperback, 340 pages, with over lots of gorgeous art, for only $13.99 – worth having, and we won’t make you jump through hoops to find it.You can also get the KINDLE edition via Amazon here, $3.99.

We’re sorry for the inconvenience, and thank you for your support.

New praise for Cthulhurotica!

Cthulhurotica got a great new review!

I grant you, by staying away from porn, Cuinn ended up treading a line in many places between Cthulhurotica and Cthulhuromance, which is not necessarily an awful thing at all (the most obvious example of this is Don Pizarro’s “The C-Word”, which, perhaps not coincidentally, ended up being my favorite story in the volume). Not to say that the authors who got down and dirty didn’t do so in ways that will get the reader’s Old Ones up and running; Gabrielle Harbowy’s “Descent of the Wayward Sister” is just delicious, and oh, Mae Empson’s “Between a Rock and an Elder Goddess.”

Vaginal Fantasy hangout video, and some new reviews

We’ve updated our Reviews page, and here are the latest highlights:

September 30, 2012 – “It relays a world that is very much like it is today with a bit of Cthulhu around the edges of its reality. It is more like an aphrodisiac than the main event and never gets too harsh…. Cthulhurotica made for some enjoyable reading and entertained in its melding of seemingly incompatible worlds.” Parlor of Horror

September 25, 2012 – Vaginal Fantasy Book Club (link goes to video) reviews Cthulhurotica:

  • “I appreciated the writing and thought it was really well written,” Felicia Day
  • “Thank YOU for putting the Love back in Lovecraft. Or at least the lust!” Bonnie Burton
  • “Each story had different kinds of scary moments, different kinds of sexy moments.” Veronica Belmont
  • “I also liked that the sexuality was really fluid,” Kiala Kazebee

September 25, 2012 – “This was the hottest collection of freaky erotica! If you like quickies, these little Tentacle-Porn short stories will knock your socks off.” Silvia Vale

September 13, 2012 – “The quality of writing and how it is set out including the essays and the illustrations are fantastic.” Adele Jayde

September 6, 2012 – “I felt this collection was a great exploration of pairing creepy, terrifying, and even horrific themes with other themes such a love, marriage, romance, friendship and sexuality. Overall, I enjoyed not only the writing (which was pretty good, in general) but the uniqueness of this collection of short stories.” Madison Martin

Tonight’s the Night! Vaginal Fantasy Hangout at 8 PM PST

“Join Felicia Day, Veronica Belmont, Bonnie Burton and Kiala Kazabee for a gathering of wine, women and smut as they discuss and dissect a new romance novel each month. This month’s book choices: Cthulhurotica & Eternal Pleasure (Gods of the Night #2) by Nina Bangs.” – Geek & Sundry

You can watch the discussion live at YouTube.com/GeekAndSundry at 8 pm tonight, Tuesday September 25, Pacific Standard Time. (That’s 11 pm if you’re on the East Coast.)

Comments from the VF Goodreads Forum

We’ve had a great time watching the conversations about Cthulhurotica unfold on the Vaginal Fantasy Goodreads page. Whether they loved it or didn’t understand it, new readers are talking about our book and that’s wonderful. Here are some of the highlights:

“The creep factor is very well done indeed and the tone is really like Lovecraft et al.” – Caroline

“What I like about the stories was that if you’ve read Lovecraft, the similarities or different takes were really good when compared to the original.” – Michelle

“I loved it and I am glad I bought it…” – Andrew

“Thanks for putting together such an awesome anthology”  – Amanda

“While I would say that some of the short stories are disturbing, I found that most of the them are more intriguing. That is why I really enjoyed this book. I felt this collection was a great exploration of pairing creepy, terrifying, and even horrific themes with other themes such a love, marriage, romance, friendship and sexuality.” – Madison

“I’ve actually been really enjoying it so far – it’s kinda cool to be taken out of your comfort zone by a book, especially one that is as well-written as this is. I wasn’t expecting “tentacle-sexy-times” to actually be interesting to read.” – Fi

As Seen On Geek And Sundry!

Last night the wonderful ladies of the Vaginal Fantasy book club revealed that their official book pick for September is CTHULHUROTICA.

(And then our editor, Carrie, freaked out a little bit, but she’s okay now.)

This means that Felicia Day, Veronica Belmont, Bonnie Burton and Kiala Kazebee will be reading our book this month, and discussing it with their viewers and fans on September 25 at 8pm Pacific time via a live chat.

If you’re new to Cthulhurotica, and found us through VF, welcome! This anthology of short stories is published by Dagan Books, a small press founded by the book’s editor, Carrie Cuinn. The book is meant to show that women, people of color, and people of different sexualities have a place in HP Lovecraft’s Mythos universe – even if Lovecraft himself didn’t think so. You can buy our book here, and follow us on Twitter or on Facebook. We have interviews with the authors too.

We’re also planning a second book in the series, which (like this one) will contain all original stories and art. That’s being put together by Carrie Cuinn and Filipino-American author and editor Don Pizarro (who’s story, “The C-Word” appears in the first book).

Thank you for stopping by, and we hope you enjoy our book!
